  •  Thanks for your great reporting & commentary (25+ / 0-)

    I look forward to your daily posts. Are you in frequent contact with the Kloppenburg Campaign? Are they aware of Mawdsley's tactics & what you overheard via the livestream? I hear that Kevin Kennedy is an old Tommy Thompson crony so the deck is really stacked against JoAnne. On the day of the '14K miracle'  Kennedy was doing an interview with Ben Merens on Wisconsin Public Radio & he (Kennedy) didn't seem surprised at all about this 'found vote' news so I was suspicious of his reaction to it.

      I assume they are aware of everything that's been said, though.  

      Kennedy is another person whose reputation has taken a hit from this. He began his "review" of the Waukesha County clerk by saying this:

      We have confidence in Wisconsin’s county and municipal clerks, and do not believe any of them would do anything illegal to jeopardize their own reputation, or Wisconsin’s reputation for clean, fair and transparent elections.

      I'm sure that was some review, considering he had made up his mind that no clerk did anything illegal before he even started reviewing.

      it is hereby DECLARED that 2011 Wisconsin Act 10 has not been published within the meaning of Wis. Stats. §§ 991.11, 35.095(1)(b) and 35.095(3)(b), and is therefore not in effect.
